Qualification Requirements and Regulations
The doctorate programme consists of a minimum of seven courses, with a minimum of 21 national credits, a qualifying examination, a dissertation proposal, and a dissertation. The period allotted for the completion of the Doctorate programmes is normally eight semesters (four years). However, while it is possible to graduate in a shorter time, it is also possible to have an extension subject to the approval of the graduate school. The seminar course and thesis are non-credit and graded on a pass/fail basis. The total ECTS credits of the programme is 240 ECTS. A student may take undergraduate courses on the condition that the courses have not been taken during the undergraduate program. However, at most two of these courses may be counted to the Doctorate course load and credits. The PhD students are required to take the Doctoral Qualifying Examination, after having successfully completed taught courses. The examination consists of written and oral parts. The Doctoral Qualifying Committee determines by absolute majority whether a candidate has passed or failed the examination. Students who fail the Qualifying Examination may retake the examination the following semester. Students failing the Examination a second time are dismissed from the program. Students must register for thesis work and the Specialization Field course offered by his supervisor every semester following the semester, in which the supervisor is appointed. A dissertation supervisor who must hold the minimum rank of assistant professor is appointed for each PhD student. When the nature of the dissertation topic requires more than one supervisor, a joint-supervisor may be appointed. A joint-supervisor must hold a doctoral degree. Periodic monitoring of research work by a thesis monitoring committee is required to be awarded the Doctoral degree. A student who has completed work on the thesis within the time period, must write a thesis, using the data collected, according to the specifications of the Graduate School Thesis Writing Guide. The thesis must be defended in front of a jury. The thesis jury is appointed on the recommendations of the relevant Department Chairperson and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School. The jury is composed of the thesis supervisor and 5 faculty members. Of the appointed jury members, up to two may be selected from another Department or another University. The co-supervisor cannot be the jury member. Thesis defense by the candidate is open to all audience and a jury decides to grant/deny the Doctoral degree. A majority vote by the jury members determines the outcome of the thesis or examination. The vote can be for "acceptance", "rejection" or "correction". A student may be given, by a decision of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School, up to six months to complete the corrections. The student must then retake the thesis examination.
